Illinois State University’s Career Center encourages alumni to attend its career fairs. Not only are alumni welcome to attend career fairs for potential career opportunities or to network, but they can also give back to Illinois State by hiring a Redbird.


Illinois State faculty and staff are also invited to attend career fairs. The employers attending are interested in learning about the curriculum and programs at Illinois State. They are also a helpful resource to faculty and staff as they can provide expertise of their own about what’s new in their industries and what skills they are seeking in candidates.


With over 20,000 students enrolled and over 5,300 degrees conferred each year, Illinois State is an excellent institution for employers to meet exciting new talent.
